The longitudinal and transverse relaxation time constants of blood vary across subjects, developmental stages, physiological states or specific diseases. We implemented a fast method for simultaneous in vivo measurements of blood T1 and T2. Although such an approach has been successfully demonstrated, its repeatability or robustness has not been assessed. We performed a two-session study using our fast in vivo blood T1 and T2 imaging method, and the study results are reported in the following.
